Wealthy Americans Are Giving Less Of Their Incomes To Charity, While Poor Are Donating More

Wealthy Americans Are Giving Less Of Their Incomes To Charity, While Poor Are Donating More



So basically, as the 1% consolidate their hold on most of the wealth of the world, they are less inclined to donate any of that income to charity.  The more they get, the more they want to keep it.

Meanwhile the poor, struggling to get by, are giving more to help their fellow 99%.



Fair disclosure: the wealthy are giving more total dollars, it's the percentage of their giving compared to total wealth that is decreasing. 



You can see how your state compares here.
